Young Theatre Organist of the Year (YTOY) Comptition 2017

The 2017 YTOY was held on Sunday 30th July at Fentham Hall, near Solihull, home to the COS Midland District and their fine Compton organ.  We would like to thank all those involved at Fentham Hall for their help and support in hosting the event, and once again to Michael Wooldridge for organising it.

You can read the full competition report here, and view photos of the event here.  Further information on the competition is available from our YTOY pages.

If you would like to make a contribution to help towards the costs of running this important event, please contact our treasurer Keith Reeve at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Help needed

We need help and support in the following ways:

  • Chapter trustees.  You would need to be registered as a trustee of the charity, be able to support the organisation and attend comittee meetings.
  • Woking concert set up and take down.  We would particularly welcome local people who can regularly help with this as none of the committee live in Surrey, let alone Woking!
  • Woking concert raffle.  Organise obtaining good quality prizes, sell tickets at the concerts, help with the draw and cash up at the end of the evening.

If you think you can help or wish to learn more then please contact one of the ATOS trustees who's details you can find here.
